Do you like living in the old style homes?The old style houses have wooden pillars, and huge rooms. The ventilation comes from the roof as well, as there will be a portion of the veranda near the front hall, that is cemented with iron rods, but has enough space for the rain water to come in. The entire house is a tiled house, and the dried neem leaves are always used to keep the mosquitoes away. The sleep in that portion of the verandah, from where the fresh air can come in, is always pleasant even in summer. This is reason why the neem trees are allowed to grow right outside their open spaces inside the houses.
Such houses, with a huge area in front, are found in so many places in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. These were supposed to be the abode of the Brahmin community, but have since been occupied by other communities too. Today, there is hardly any caste discrimination.
These are simply superb houses. Do you like living in such superb, naturally ventilated homes?
I do like to live in such homes, though I don't do now. I will at some stage of my life, at least for a few months.
